It's slightly strange: First order and pay, go sit down even on the other side of the restaurant out of view, and then somehow the lady server found us and delivered the lunch in pretty good time. The hamburger is very good, although really it's just a standard hamburger, nothing truly special like a secret sauce or something. So, our... More

This is by far the best chicken around. Everything else is great also, from the hamburgers to the ice cream. I've been eating here for years.

The broasted chicken you ever want to eat. We go there at least 2 or 3 times a month. Grew up eating this food all my life. The ice cream is great also.

This establishment serves a number of things but you have to order the fried chicken. It is by far the bests I have ever eaten in a restaurant. Crispy, well seasoned, moist and not greasy. The service was fantastic, very friendly and accommodating. Order at the window and almost before you can sit down your food is delivered. The only... More

Place is clean, staff is friendly and competent, food is great for the right price. This is a good place to meet for committee business or just a refreshing meal with a friend.

Yes they are known for their French fries and they are good. However, don't overlook their ice cream. We have been several times. On our last visit they had just run short of bananas (for our banana split). Have no fear, they sent a young man to the nearby grocers to buy a few more. It did not take but... More
